Lucky Day

I am SO excited to share today’s card with you.  The color inspiration came from ColourQ Challenge #191:

And here’s where I took it:

Pearl Gateway - June Cards (3)

Do you LOVE it!?  I was working on another card (post from this morning) when I saw the little cherries in the same set.  I don’t know why but it struck me to make a little slot machine!  I picked out a couple images from different sets, and pieces it all together.  This card took forever but I am thrilled with it – you know, one of those ones you can’t see yourself getting rid of Winking smile

If this is your first time here – thanks for the visit and hope to see you soon.  If you want more details on how this was made, keep reading.  If the picture says a thousand words, have a great day! xoxo

Recipe:  Divided a 5.25x5.25 square card into 3 main sections that are 1.5 thick.  Lined up the 7’s from a HA/SC set, then followed suit with the BAR from the same set.  HA question mark in HA Soft Pool, and lemon slice and cherries from a Fiskars set, both overlaid with Glossy Accents.  Lucky Day alphas are from Dear Lizzy and enamel dots are MME.  Arrow from HA/SC set inked in HA Soft Granite.
